Visit with Family

My parents, sister and my nephew Bobby were in town this past week. They were able to see the new house and spend time with us. Dad worked on the lawn and fixed the few thing that needed fixing (thank you so much Papa). Mom and Kristiina were able to go to Ikea one day and we all headed to the Airpark Cafe for breakfast (which both boys seemed to enjoy). We all enjoyed our time together, even though Carson had the most difficult time 'not being the only grandchild.' Between the tantrums and 'not sharing,' we had a good time. Thank you Papa,Mimmi and Auntie K for coming to be with us. We love you dearly and can't wait for vacation in the summer.

Move In and Carson's B-Day

Wow! Am I behind in blogging, or what??? Well, we are in our new home and it is nothing short of AMAZING!!! We have experinced nothing but the Lord's grace since we have been here. Carson has adjusted SO well, which is a HUGE answer to prayer. We feel settled and much at home. We thank the Lord daily for the gift in this new home, but more than that the gift in this AMAZING neighborhood. We are surrounded with so many friends and great neighbors. It is such a gift from God, every afternoon that it has been nice outside, Carson and I have been out back anywhere from 3-6pm with 15+ of our friends kids!

I am blogging backwards...posting pictures from Carson's 3rd Birthday Party (that we had last weekend) and pictures of the new home are soon to come!

This past Saturday we had a late birthday party for Carson and a cookout with neighbors. Of course, the theme was 'Lighting MaQueen.' Here are a few pictures from the event:
